The concept of restricted neural dynamics is not new, however its impact on our patients’ daily activities and movement tolerance is often overlooked during the examination and treatment. This course covers concepts for examination and quantifying restricted neural dynamics and basic intervention strategies for the upper quarter, including the cervical spine. Included is a critical review of the most up-to-date literature in peer-reviewed journals regarding the use of neural mobilization as an examination and treatment technique. The course is appropriate for physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapy assistants and occupational therapy assistants as both assessment and treatment concepts will be covered to aide them in the care of their patients. This course includes laboratory sessions in which participants will practice neural mobilization and examination techniques. Participants are encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Following this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the basic pathophysiology of irritated neural tissue
• Recognize signs of nerve irritability and indications for assessing nerve mobility.
• Identify specific upper extremity palpation points to assess irritated neural tissue.
• Assess nerve mobility using a 0-5/5 scale for the brachial plexus, median, ulnar, and radial nerves.
• Differentiate between neural and non-neural structures causing movement restrictions in the upper extremity.
• Perform a basic screening exam of the cervical spine for radiculopathy
• Apply treatment techniques to provide space, motion and slack to neural tissue
• Learning outcomes will be assessed during hands-on lab sessions via observation and demonstration of skills.
Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
